Marello is our signature red blend. The 2017 vintage may be our best yet! A classic Super Tuscan with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese and a sprinkling of Rhone varietals including Mourvedre....the 2017 Marello has notes of blueberry, black currants, dried herbs and amazingly enough, cigar box.
What a delight -this wine has black pepper, dried foliage, roasted meat and sweet tobacco. It has nice acidity, low alcohol and low/moderate tannin. This Mourvedre pairs well with wild game or kebabs with peppers and mushrooms.
Confluence is a fitting name for this non-traditional red blend of our award winning Cabernet Franc and Mourvedre varietals. Like the American River confluence just a few miles away from us, these two wines came together to create an amazing blend.
